After much hard work we are up and running – ready to welcome guests to a very special part of Canterbury, New Zealand.

We are a 10 minute drive from our local town, Rangiora and 35 minutes from  Christchurch, the South Island’s largest city. Christchurch is currently undergoing a massive rebuild after the earthquakes making it a dynamic and vibrant place to visit.

Our B&B runs alongside the stunning and revered braided Ashley/ Rakahuri River with a  myriad of tracks and paths to meander around. Just up the road are the North Canterbury wineries and Hanmer Springs, to the east are the Southern Alps and ski fields,  and the East Coast beaches also beckon.

The Studio is a welcoming  space – with a comfortable queen bed, relaxing living area with TV and dining area with a table and chairs to dawdle over your breakfast. You will find a refrigerator, kettle, toaster and kitchenwear for your use.

An array of tea,coffee  and beverages are  provided. A comprehensive Continental Breakfast is included in your stay. A range of breads, crumpets and bagels for toasting, spreads and toppings, along with cereal and yoghurt. Cooked breakfasts are available on request on weekends.

A short step up and through to the bathroom, shower, toilet and vanity. Additionally you have a large walk in wardrobe to keep those bulky suitcases out of the way and space to store and hang your clothes.

The front of the Studio is paved and under cover with ample car parking.

We are pet friendly and have covered kennel space available for your canine companion.
